president obama and vice president joe biden will unveil their plan to fight gun violence. here's what we're expecting them to say -- according to an official familiar with the situation the president will press for a ban on high capacity magazines, purr for universal background checks and an assault weapons ban, and request funding to treat mental illness as well as funding to enhance school safety. already the nra is on the attack before it's even seen the plan. the group released this ad which paints obama as an elitist hypocrite. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun free zones for ours. >> it's a tough ad. dan lothian is at the white house. but i understand the president is fighting back with his own pr strategy because when he makes his big announcement he'll be s
their own bullets, regular gun enthusiasts, are they going to listen to these nut cases or to joe biden when he offers proposals next week on background checks and high capacity magazines. who are the people that are going to decide this issue? i mean, the gun owners going to go with, the wild bunch or the town posse? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother joseph" and joey reid is managing editor of "the grewo." joey, the regular gun owners, pennsylvania ooip owners, practice sheeting and get good at it with a couple of shots, that's all you get with a deer, are they going to go with the nuts? >> you know what, chris, i grew up in colorado, people who hunted. colorado is a big hunting state and i don't think anybody i've ever met that's a responsible gun owner can side with for lack of a better word these loony tunes out here because they are doing something different. they are stockpiling. they are getting assault rifles. these are not normal gun owners what. you're hearing from now is the absolute fringe, and, unfortunately, they are being allowed to speak for the pro second ame

the president and joe biden are giving crystal vases but with obama seated with harry reid and speaker boehner, i half expect a food taster present but joking aside, they will be collegial, that is expected. >> senator schumer joked he and his inaugural co-chairman will be sitting between be to keep it simple but he said for the sake of the nation he hopes the two parties find a way to develop a better recentship in the years ahead. >> that tunnel ordeal was a mess, i heard they did not even print purple tickets this time. >> they retired the purple ticket after what happened in 2009. >> battery fire on a japan airlines 787, two weeks ago was not caused by overcharging. the national transportation safety board said there could be problems with wiring. the f.a.a. in the united states and many other countries grounded the boeing 787 dreamliner until they get answers. the plane relies more or electrical system than older aircraft. still ahead, a look back at the president's first term with a look ahead toward what could come next. first we will try to put together what happened at the end of the
of mayors' winter meeting. vice president joe biden will speak to the group just getting under way here live on c-span. [applause] >> mayors and ladies and gentlemen. it is, of course, my distinct honor and pleasure to have the opportunity to introduce our good friend and my good friend, vice president joe biden. throughout his career as a public servant, vice president biden has championed issues that are critical to the prosperity and growth of america's cities, and he has engaged directly with the u.s. conference of mayors on a regular basis. during our annual meeting this past june in orlando, vice president biden pledged that the obama administration would make sure that future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. whenever there's a major issue that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to h
be the vice president, joe biden, but it looks like he's sort of overshadowed here by another -- somebody else with a claim, as well. hillary clinton. how do you think that shakes snout who has the claim to be the sort of successor candidate going forward? >> well, the nice thing is they both do. you have an heir and a spare. you have a two good back-ups. and let's take thomas jefferson, because the presidents who have done this in the past are ronald reagan, franklin roosevelt, abe lincoln and thomas jefferson. thomas jefferson hands off power to his secretary of state james madison. so, both secretaries of state historically and vice presidents have been plausible successors. >> you know, in your advice to the president to make sure his second term is a success and not a failure, like we have said, appoint a successor, you also say to go big with things like immigration reform. you tell him to campaign aggressively in 2014. unlike in 2010 against republicans. all of which you think might help but wouldn't lowering unemployment, bringing the economy to full recovery, balancing a budget, would

personal tragedy and is able to speak to that in an emotional compelling way as joe biden. going back to what you were saying about very little hope of this package or really much of anything, passing it is republican house. what do you think the white house strategy is? this was not having crafted to the political realities. it was what they actually wanted. was the idea to use it to show this is not going to pass the republican house because they are extreme and unwilling to bend and use that as leverage down the line and painting the gop in my opinion, painting them as extreme and unwilling to pend. >> they are taking great pains to be realm and they are looking at all aspects of the issue and mental health and video games. i do think that you are seeing a president who in all regards has become increasingly defiant and combative and taking his case out to the country and i think it's part narrative that obama is trying to tell about. i don't want to overstate the popularity of what the white house is is doing. the numbers have moved in the way of the gun control adkro voicates, bu
for girls? and the mother who lost her son to gun violence twice. first, want to know what joe biden plans to do about the guns? me, too. i'm going to ask his son. good morning. i'm m i i'm melissa harris-perry. biden's report to the president comes a week after meetings in search of some common ground among all the sides of the gun control debate. the usual suspects, firearm retailers including a reluctant walmart, gun violence survivors who shared their firsthand experiences, gun control proponents and gun control opponents pushing for expanded rights. the de facto leader of that opposition, the national rifle association issued a statement after their sit-down with the vice president. their solution? to dig in deeper on the all guns all the time ideology and put armed guards in every american school. the nra promises to marshall their formidable, political and financial resources to fight any new reforms every step of the way. they will do so with the support of allies in congress, most notably republicans on the house committee who continue to propose limits on assault weapons. no surp
: that is true. when you think of joe biden, chuck hagel, barack obama, john kerry, you four guys that worked in that committee. i think they will find opportunities. they did work together. i remember david petraeus, when he was testifying about afghanistan, was asked by richard luger about strategy and where afghanistan fit inside the broader objectives. he said, that is not my job. my job is to achieve success and achieve our objective inside afghanistan. i cannot tell you what the trade-offs are. i respect very schmitt a great deal. we have a legitimate disagreement as far as the strategic objectives and costs the united states bore for that. when we invaded iraq, which i opposed, i thought was completely right to decimate al qaeda, i thought the rationale for dealing with iraq was different. i thought you moved saddam hussein, you basically create an incredible opportunity for iran to grow. that would require us to take a different -- it has always been about iran, but our decision to take up the chief storm and tap in the bottle was something that, where you get a real test of the quest
